Studio Arts 11/12

The very first thing we know about God in His Word (Genesis 1) is that He is a creator, the master artist... "and God saw all that He had made and it was good". What a privilege we have as believers to share in and reflect God's creative handiwork in the visual arts. Studio Arts 11/12 provides you with a unique opportunity to respond to and create images as an essential form of communication. These are indispensable to freedom of inquiry and expression. In this course, you’ll begin to take the Elements and Principles of Design, integrate these with your developing imagination to explore and communicate both attitudes and feelings about our world as it relates to your faith. The emphasis at this level is on image-development, technical skill proficiency, design processes, and visual literacy.
